Uncapped goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been called up to the England squad, with Tom Heaton and Ross Barkley dropping out due to injury.

Henderson, on loan at Sheffield United from Manchester United, replaces Villa 'keeper Heaton, who has been struggling with a calf injury he sustained in training.

England boss Gareth Southgate has opted not to bring anyone into his squad to replace Chelsea midfielder Barkley (ankle), who has missed Chelsea's last six matches.

Heaton was ruled out of Villa's 2-1 defeat at Wolves on Sunday, with Henderson earning his call-up after featuring in all 12 of the Blades' Premier League matches this season.

The 22-year-old also replaced Heaton in last month's squad after the Villa man was also forced to withdraw from the squad for their 2-1 defeat in the Czech Republic and the 6-0 thrashing of Bulgaria, which was marred by racist chants and gestures during the match in Sofia.
